"This is my comfort in all my affliction, that your promise gives me life." Ps. 119:50 (ESV)
Or, as the NASB puts it, "that Thy word has revived me."
Says Matthew Henry of the quickening power of the Word of God,
"If through grace it make us holy, there is enough in it to make us easy, in all conditions, under all events."
So let us take heart today, "For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope." Rom. 15:4 (ESV)
